prognosis for the future? dr. lee from lsu health sciences center. thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure. >> what are the potential implications for the blood clot, where it is located and how are you reading it? >> well, i mean, it is hard without seeing the patient, but truthfully -- potentially it can be very dangerous. now, it is extremely rare to have this kind of clot in the vein after a mild concussion. if you don't have something like a skull fracture that tears some of the membranes there, but this type of clot is related to other conditions. if you have blood disorders where your blood clots too readily, you can sometimes get it if you have infection, and postpartum, it is common in women in the postpartum period. and then the clot itself can cause a back up of blood and can lead to damage of the brain and sort of like a little stroke in that area. but her doctors are reporting she doesn't have any symptoms like a stroke. they seem to think they caught it early, and they are giving her medicines to stop the clotting anti-coagulation. that takes a couple days to regulate that. >
